The latest text reads:

   # Since memory is not infinite, UAs may clamp the the possible size
   # of the grid to within a UA-defined limit, dropping all lines
   # outside that limit. If a grid item spans outside this limit, its
   # span must be clamped to the last line of the limited grid. If a
   # grid item is placed outside this limit, its span must be truncated
   # to 1 and the item repositioned into the last grid track on that
   # side of the grid.

Another option would be, if a repeat() function were involved, to clamp
the number of repetitions rather than clamping the resulting explicit
grid. Imho this isn't worth the additional complexity, but I'm open to
other opinions.

Let us know what you think!
